Opportunities for Graduate Students

Call for Proposals–Tell the Story of C21!

C21 invites proposals for visually telling the story of the Center’s history and mission.  C21 has an extensive collection of framed posters of lectures, conferences, and book covers from its 50 year history. Our hope is that they could be re-exhibited to better tell the story of our history and to make our space on the 9th floor of Curtin Hall more engaging / inviting. 

How might you re-exhibit our collection to relay the rich history of C21 in more public spaces (lobby / hallway)?  How might you visually engage visitors to the 9th floor so they know they are in a place that invites innovative thought to tackle the most pressing issues of the time across disciplines?  

Our budget is small ($1,500), but our potential impact is great. This project can be done as an internship or independent study for credit.

Deadline:  Friday, October 22nd. Submit to c21@uwm.edu
